Odyssey’s visual arts department will facilitate the learning of the skills and techniques necessary for a scholar to find success within each discipline in the visual arts. Scholars are also taught how to effectively access and critique the best resources available to them both physically and on the Internet. Courses in fine art drawing and painting, interior design, photography and film emphasize the importance of working towards mastery through the application of effective techniques, experimentation, and practice.
